Great. Ninety-nine percent of SRVUSD high school sophomores can pass a seventh grade test.

Dog is right---the exit exam is not grade level. And to be able to have such a high passing rate prior to the senior year speaks volumes. So hilarious to way h public school advocates pat themselves in the back! "Wow, Johnny knows his colors!" (age15)

I know it is counter-revolutionary BUT could we just concentrate on teaching Reading, Riting and Rythmatic for a change. These are the things that will enable the student to stay off the welfare rolls after he graduates. The social engineering crap is only useful if your goal in life is to be part of a "rent-a-mob!"
